“This page is part of the Local offer for Portsmouth. Under the Children and Families Bill which becomes law in 2014, Local Authorities are required to publish, and keep under review, information about services that they expect to be available for children and young people with disabilities and Special Educational Needs aged 0-25. This is called the Local Offer. The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for professionals in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area”.

For Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

Solent Junior School believes that all pupils should become

  • Successful learners, who enjoy learning, make good progress and achieve well.
  • Confident individuals, who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
  • Responsible citizens, who show consideration and respect towards one another and make a positive contribution to our community.


Special educational provision is educational or training provision that is additional to or different from that made generally for others of the same age. This means provision that goes beyond the differentiated approaches and learning arrangements normally provided as part of high quality, personalised teaching. It may take the form of additional support from within a setting or require involvement of specialist staff or support services.


Our School has a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) who is responsible for the management of provision and or support for identified pupils with SEND. They will also coach and support teachers and other staff to enable them to provide appropriate assessment and fouled provision for children in their class with SEND.


All teachers are teachers of SEND pupils and as such provide quality first teaching which takes account of the particular individual needs of pupils with SEND within the classroom.
